For many of us, finding clothes that fit is a constant struggle, something we’ve dealt with for years. Though some brands are now offering extended size clothing, it’s important we keep talking about the need for more options. Wearing clothes that are made for your body can change your life.
When menswear brand Bonobos asked me to be part of their new Suiting Shift campaign, I couldn’t pass it up. They asked me to talk about my experience with suiting and how finding the perfect suit actually changed my life. You can listen to a snippet of my story in the video above.

This shoot was also special because I was photographed by Norman Jean Roy, who has shot the likes of Idris Elba, Serena Williams, Tilda Swinton, Matthew McConaughey, Kit Harrington and many others featured on the covers and in the pages of magazines like GQ and Vanity Fair.
I can assure you 14-year-old Bruce never would have dreamed of getting the opportunity to do something like this.
